Hello! So, if you don’t know us, we at Very Edible Gardens do permaculture design, run great courses and lots of other stuff.  But despite the name, we’re passionate about much more than gardens.

So we decided to partner with a couple of our favourite thinkerers and tinkerers — the magnificent Tim Barker and Joel Meadows — to help them put together some hands-on workshops and share some online resources on what they do so well and love: alternative tech, or appropriate tech, call it what you will; basically stuff that you can build with your hands that makes life better and doesn’t screw up the earth.

So come join us! We’ll have a lot of fun. We’ll skill up. As we run workshops in central Vic, starting at the beautiful Yandoit Farm.

From rocket stoves to ram pumps, from scything to solar water heating, from windmills to wood gasification, come become the next generation of alt-tech wizard, and surf the transition to a sustainable future in style.
